Some of these might have to haggle over who was truly “first," but the interesting point is it took so little time for them to appear after the launch of the video camera-capable iPhone 3GS. Those who hate on the relative lack of “image quality" including haters of the Flip Mino series really miss the point here — it’s about convenience, ease of use and the empowerment of a new breed of digital creatives. Much like the falling cost of recording equipment spawned a surge in bedroom production from talented (and untalented…) unknowns and amateurs in the realm of music, so too will we continue to see an uptick in compelling and relevant video productions from unexpected places.

Digital music kiosks take another spin
Reading this gives me crazy ideas about completely transforming the music retail experience into more of a social experience — get rid of 80% of the CD racks, keep some premium inventory around like box sets and limited editions, put in a coffee shop (seems to work wonders for brick and mortar book retailers) and create a space for music lovers to hang out and share tunes with each other. Put in digital “jukebox" computers, let people stream whatever they want (volume might be an issue… maybe the tables have headphone stands, or hire a brilliant sound engineer to baffle everything properly so tables/stations don’t bleed too much audio), and some percentage will buy MP3 files on site (and continue to buy some physical media). Others won’t buy anything but the occasional coffee but will be 100% free and avid promoters to others. Have concerts and special events in stores constantly. Hold workshops for wo...
